More HZMB private car quotas set

The governments of Hong Kong and Macau have agreed to increase the regular quotas for Hong Kong cross-boundary non-commercial private cars using the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge to Macau, the Transport Department announced today.   The decision was made to enhance traffic flow between Hong Kong and Macau, better utilising the bridge, the department said.   It will increase the Hong Kong quota by 1,000, following the earlier quota allocation of 1,800 for Hong Kong.   The additional quota will be distributed in two phases from the second quarter.   Half of the additional 1,000 quota allocations is for company applicants and the other half is for individual applicants. The quotas are valid for no more than three years. The eligibility criteria of quota applications remains the same.   Private cars allocated with Hong Kong quotas will be permitted to access the city of Macau multiple times using the bridge.   The Hong Kong quota allotments will be re-allocated upon expiry thro

LeaveHomeSafe coverage extended

Starting from December 9, use of the LeaveHomeSafe mobile app will be extended to all premises regulated under the Prevention & Control of Disease (Requirements & Directions) (Business & Premises) Regulation, the Government announced today.   From that day onwards, all customers or users must scan the LeaveHomeSafe venue QR code, using the mobile app before entering the premises.   The Government will closely liaise with the relevant trades in the coming two weeks to ensure the smooth implementation of the measure. The public should comply with the requirement to further enhance the anti-epidemic capacity of Hong Kong.   Meanwhile, the social distancing measures currently in place will be maintained for 14 days until December 8.   The decision came amid the severe COVID-19 pandemic situation across the world, the Government said, noting that it strives to foster favourable conditions for resuming cross-boundary travel with the Mainland and cross-border travel in future.   In view of the increasingly smooth operation of the “cruise-to-nowhere” itineraries and the set of stringent health control safeguards adopted by the cruise lines, starting from December 1, the passenger capacity limit of cruise ships will be adjusted from 50% to 75% of the normal capacity.   With vaccination a crucial part of the local anti-epidemic strategy, the Government will review and implement additional measures to increase the vaccination rate, including the possibility of extending the scope of the "vaccine bubble" and closely monitor the vaccination enhancement measures adopted in the Mainland and overseas.
